The entire nation is remembering Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, who was the first and longest prime minister of independent India.
Meanwhile, the Congress party tweeted with an official Twitter handle saying, ‘Your vision gave us a thriving democracy, your rationality helped us move towards development and your sympathetic nature taught us tolerance and brotherhood’.
Pandit Nehru was a great fighter of the Indian freedom struggle against British rule. He believed in democracy, secularism and socialism. In 1955, Pandit Nehru was awarded the Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian honor.
Pandit Nehru took charge of the country when the country was going through an epidemic like starvation, poverty and illiteracy.
Your vision gave us a thriving democracy, your rationality helped us strive towards development and your empathetic nature taught us tolerance & brotherhood. And for all this and more #IndiaThanksNehruji, for laying a solid foundation of a truly modern India. pic.twitter.com/A1DxYd4LJO
